"I graduated from Griffith College Dublin in 2008 with an LLB in Irish Law, following this I applied for the position of Dave Ellis intern for NCLC in 2008/2009. During my time with the law centre I was given the opportunity to be involved in case work across various areas of law such as consumer, housing, employment and family law. The internship gave me a great insight into the day to day work of a lawyer and was very practical in comparison to the purely academic work of my degree.
In 2013 I successfully sat the entrance examination to the barrister at law degree in Kings Inns. I studied full time for one year. In July 2014 I graduated from Kings Inns and was called to the Bar of Ireland.
“Working as an Intern with CLM Limerick my workload was incredibly diverse. It enabled me to develop legal practice skills such as research, drafting of legal documents, attending court, dealing with ad hoc legal queries and client management in addition to general office duties. There was a strong emphasis placed on learning and development. I was impressed to witness first hand the passion and enthusiasm exhibited by all staff for the work they do. The projects I was involved in with both the Limerick and Dublin Offices were captivating and highly diverse, and I feel my involvement with the Law Centre has given me the skill set needed for a successful career in law”.
